How long will a 16X7 non-insulated or lightly insulated steel door last??
We've been replacing a lot of them at five years. They only put one strut across the top section, so the doors collapse on themselves over time. If they added another 16' strut across the middle, they would last a lot longer. If you're going to buy a door, buy a fully-insulated, steel, raised panel door with at least a 9 R value and it will last forever, or until your wife or daughter backs through it....
i'm guessing that you are talking about garage doors ... HD doesn't do those installs ... so those problems need to
be addressed by Clopay or whoever is doing garage doors in your area .. granted , HD should take full
responsibilty on these matters ,but it's not unusual to see such a company lateral the problems to the
vendor company ... g
